View Full Version : With Hackers Concerns & Grees lack of communication should we continue to play?

These hackers issues have gotten out of hand. I would like to hear especially from gold invested players. SHOULD WE CONTINUE OR STOP?

I knew these guys were in over their heads but I enjoyed the game so much I purchased gold against my better judgement. If this company was bought out by one of the bigs....Sony, Amazon, MS etc. someone who is experienced in dealing with these type issues and keeping their customers in the loop there is no telling what it's potential would be.

Basically if everyone decides to stop playing here and now. I am willing to walk away. Most of us who are invested I know it's difficult but these guys are under performing. Which Has been the case for months. If they did something as simple as communicated with us most of us have the capacity of understanding to put up with this situation. But without any real communication other than their generic responses we must take a stand.

So I ask WHO'S WILLING TO TAKE A STAND?

Who the he__ spends 50 to 100k per month? I know you are not serious. Nobody spends that much on this game. Do you mean $5k - 10k?

I buy gold. I guess you could say I buy a lot of gold. I have lots of gold buildings.
I work for at&t, and I make good money. Got my own Debit card to spend my money as I please, so I can afford to buy 200+ gold every two weeks when I get paid. I could buy much more, and I certainly would buy much more, but it's pointless to do so because it doesn't get you far enough in the game for the price that it costs, no matter what you spend the gold on.

I personally, in the 2 months I have been playing, have never experienced a hacker or a bot, never been bothered by one and never seen one or heard of one other than on these forums. So I am not personally effected.

However, I am unhappy with Gree. I am unhappy with their greed and the price of gold items and the price of upgrades. So with that said, if there was a massive strike by us gold-buyers, or a petition.. I would gladly stop buying gold for how ever long it takes, as long as many other people did as well. Organize it and I will join. lol

I believe it is difficult, almost impossible to stop with this game especially as a group
I decided as a gold player to stop with buying gold untill major problems are solved (hackers ( i want all the hackers removed)the big mistakes developers make everytime with events and as a ios player, the problems which the android players have to start the events.
I believe when every goldplayer stops with buying gold gree must react because there only business is to sell it.
And i want to ask , even if gree gives a discount from 50%, do not buy gold untiil the problems are solved.

I quit buying gold ages ago. The game is hugely unbalanced and Gree has no intention of fixing it.

Spend $20,000 to be able to post "10-0 Sucka" to a complete stranger? So not a value.

I've been calling for a boycott since I joined this forum! I stopped playing all the other games a while ago, unfortunately most of my time, energy and $$ was spent on cc, I won't be buying gold!!!! Play, yes, gold, HE'LL NO!!!
I still believe cc wont last another 6 months, I believe greed will scrap theses games as not worth the trouble and not worth their 120 mill outlay. Don't forget this is a jap company, their not used to westerners complaining to them constantly, your dealing with a culture that is submissive, not in your face!

Some people earlier started a MW boycott. If you're interested in starting one, you should hit them up and try to get one going.

Ive worked for a jap company, spent time in their culture, if you think calling a culture submissive is racist, then wow, your very insulated! Have you seen gree's bottom line to know that their making money? Rant??? Wtf?? Half the posts on here are rants. But, cause I'm a newbie and not all buddy buddy with forum regulars then its a rant! Ok, obviously its good for some and not for others. Btw, looking at your avatar, are you in the military?? Specifically USA military??? If yes, then have a look in the mirror champ and what you see is the epitome of racism!

Pretty dumb statements on two fronts:

1. You don't spend $120 MM and write off CC et al that justified the acquisition. EU and Asian companies rarely do this but some US companies do when they screw up the business.

2. Racist remarks as pointed out by someone else will probably get you banned for awhile. This game had issues under Funzio that have gotten worse post acquisition mostly likely due to changes and losses by former Funzio employees.

Just stop buying gold like I am and post plain factual information on ITunes et al about this game needed to eliminate the cheaters before getting addicted to the game. Rants and raves get ignored as someone with grudge amongst other things.

Mxz so you interpreted me as being a rascist because I used jap as an abbreviation, so you have assumed i was being derogatory, this based on simple writing, interesting. That may explain the assumption that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when they didn't! Don't assume and don't be so quick to pull the trigger! How do you know that I'm not a minority, how do you know that I haven't been called racist and derogatory ethnic names most of my life? And that its water of a ducks back! You make to many assumptions.! But hey you know it all and I don't! You the man!

01-01-2013, 10:32 PM
You're trying to tell us that you decided to abbreviate exactly one word (in all of your posting career) by removing 5 letters, that just so happened to make it an ethnic slur? Come on bro, we're not that dumb. You got caught with your pants down being racially insensitive. I don't care what you've been called by others - that doesn't make it right for you to do the same. You should be ashamed of yourself for perpetuating the hate. Especially if you're going to try to claim some sort of moral high ground based on some assumptions you have about Americans, the military, and the American military.

No, it's obvious reading over your posts that you did mean it derogatorily. That's not cool and violates posting guidelines.

How did this turn from posted topic to this? The original post here has to do with a game called Crime City. Can we get back that. Save all the racist/ war comments for your CNN forums. Please.

Again, Should we continue to play w/o purchasing gold or should we stop all together or do you think Gree is doing all they can? I personally think they are trying but are limited in there ability to resolve these type issues.

This could very well be the work of an ex employee (developer) that is trying to destroy their business. I really wouldn't have a problem with supporting Gree through this. I would appreciate it if they would be open, honest and communicate with us. They could be surprised at how many players would stand behind and support them.

No ******* idea?

Maybe not calling someone that is Japanese a Jap would go along way to not being racist.

As far as the US military goes they have done more then most countries to better the world then most nations have. No country, empire, or regime is perfect, no leader, king, president, prime minster, or any other name you give them will be perfect. That said we strive to be better. If you don't see that, or can't understand how the world has been helped time and again by not just the US military but by the US you are an idiot.

I noticed you speak english, very well. And spoke like someone educated in America, and only Americans have ever called the Japanese people the racist comment you used. So your free to enjoy all that we have fought and died for to make the world in which you live a better place, but you would never have the guts to call me anything to my face. Because you sir are and always will be a coward

NFI - several people here have tried to help you - especially MXZ.

Whether you recognise it or not, the shortened form of most people's names is derogatory if they have not given permission. It is widely recognised that the shortened form of name for the Japanese nation is considered derogatory and it is good to see so many forumites standing up against intolerance.

I am sure that you meant no harm by using the term, but many recipients of that term would be offended.

And to categorise a whole nation as submissive is to treat a collection of individuals as a collective and therefore distinguish their characteristics based on their race - that is known (describing, rather than evaluating) as racism.

I would suggest that you take up MXZ's suggestion of a bit of time out and then post something positive.

NFI - several people here have tried to help you - especially MXZ.

Whether you recognise it or not, the shortened form of most people's names is derogatory if they have not given permission. It is widely recognised that the shortened form of name for the Japanese nation is considered derogatory and it is good to see so many forumites standing up against intolerance.

I am sure that you meant no harm by using the term, but many recipients of that term would be offended.

And to categorise a whole nation as submissive is to treat a collection of individuals as a collective and therefore distinguish their characteristics based on their race - that is known (describing, rather than evaluating) as racism.

I would suggest that you take up MXZ's suggestion of a bit of time out and then post something positive.

So, basically, gobble down some rod and pipe down for a few you racist.
